|Scott Stanley from SpinYourWorld.Etsy.com|
Scott needed to raise at least $1,500 by 5 pm last night in order to make his project a reality. Guess what?! He did it - woohoo!
Even better - some generous folks pushed him over the top for a grand total of $1,809. The extra funds will go towards supplies & updating his inventory.
Tuesday I stated that if Scott's goal was reached, anyone who commented on that 4/3 post & helped spread the word about this fundraiser would be entered into a random drawing for a hand dyed drawstring backpack. A low turn out of only two wonderful visitors made for great odds of winning.
While tempted to just flip a coin, I turned to my trusty randomizer and the winner of the colorful backpack is:
Whyte from TheWhytePaper.blogspot.com
Congratulations, Whyte!! I'll be in touch today with instructions for claiming your prize.
Phew - 3 winners in 2 days! That was fun but it is time for a break. I'll post a fresh giveaway later this month, but until then it is back to artsy stuff around here for awhile.
It is IllustrationFriday once again & today's prompt is "Vocal" - Feeling inspired? Get doodling, painting, collaging or whatever it is that you do so well. Post your creation online and add your link over at IllustrationFriday.com. While there, be sure to clickety click and see what everyone else is making. Lots of fun ways to interpret this week's challenge!
Have you visited Craftsy.com lately? Through tomorrow (4/7) they are having a $14.99 sale on all online classes. I'm signing up for one of the jewelry classes as soon as I'm done here. I have not taken a Craftsy workshop yet, but have enjoyed other online workshops. (The only thing I did not like about the non-Craftsy workshops was the time limit placed on accessing the videos. Generally the instructor was available for email during the workshop dates & then you have 2 more weeks to access the info online. After the 2 weeks you no longer have access to the class, just to any printable worksheets you saved.)
Craftsy on the other hand states that "The sale expires Saturday at midnight, but your registration never does. Take the class whenever you want, however many times you want. Your satisfaction is guaranteed." Open ended viewing of the classes, at my convenience? Brilliant! I love that I can return for a technique refresher when ever needed. Click here to visit the class page, where you'll find info & short videos on about 50 workshops.
Well, I've got to run. Wishing everyone a creative day!
